Another St. Patrick's Day Treat!

It's a little known secret that my dream vacation is to Ireland. It's even in the top 5 on my bucket list! I love that Glue Dots® wanted us to make them a few St. Patrick's Day projects this month. I had a great time coming up with the four leaf clover hair clip I showed you yesterday, and this project was fun, too!

If you've been following me recently, you know that I'm in the process of moving, and all of my craft goodies are packed away! I perused Michael's for a quick project that wouldn't need too many supplies, and came up with this neat jumbo clip!
Side note: try creating with the tornadic mess my kids left behind (and didn't clean up before bed time!!). Whew!!

  • Jumbo Clip
  • Wooden Heart Shapes
  • Green Paint, brush
  • Ink for distressing
  • Fibers (I ended up just using baker's twine)

Lightly paint the wooden pieces (I liked leaving a bit of the wood grain showing). Make sure you paint the majority of the back, too (the sides stick off of the clip). I used my ink to edge the hearts and a bit on the fronts for distressing.

Use your Craft Glue Dots® to adhere the hearts to the clip. I wrapped a bit o' twine (bwa ha ha!) around the top for some texture, printed out, cut and distressed my words, and cut some felt for the clover stem (also adhered with Craft Glue Dots®).

I can't wait to use this in my future new craft room! Happy {early} St. Patrick's Day, everyone!!

  1. Oooooh, this is SUPER cute, Erin!!! I was hoping I'd get to see what you got at Michaels - but even better, got to see what you MADE from Michaels! :)
